Secondary teachers at work by R. J Campbell( )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of this book charts and analyses 2,688 working days of 384 teachers in 91 LEAs in 1991. It shows how they spent their working lives, how well matched their teaching was to their academic background, and the balance between teaching and other aspects of their work. The analysis uses five major categories: Teaching, Preparation, Administration, Professional Development and Other Activities. The authors argue that there is an occupational split between `the managers' and `the teachers'. The second part comments on the findings by relating them to issues of school management, an

The Use and management of infant teachers' time : some policy issues by R. J Campbell( Book )

3 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of this paper reviews the literature on fundamental issues that relate to the work of teachers as the national curriculum is implemented in the United Kingdom. These issues include: (1) the work day of junior and secondary school teachers; (2) the politics and sociology of teaching; (3) the work of primary school teachers; and (4) teaching under the Education Reform Act of 1988. The second part examines the teaching of infants under the Education Reform Act, factors in teachers' working conditions that hinder or help them in delivering the national curriculum, teachers' perceptions of the teaching of infants, and the impact of teachers' work on their personal and social lives. Policy issues that must be addressed to ensure the success of educational reform in the United Kingdom are identified. Issues that relate to the use of teachers' time include the pressure on teachers' time within the school day and the staffing of primary schools, teachers' work loads, infant teaching as work, and the use of nonteaching assistants. Issues that relate to the delivery of the national curriculum include pupil assessment, the subversion of formative assessment, and class size and management. Issues that relate to teachers' careers include teacher retention and promotion, and teachers' overconscientiousness. A list of 56 references is provided. (SM)
The workloads of secondary school teachers : final report : a study commissioned by AMA, Assistant Masters and Mistresses Association by R. J Campbell( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated the amount of time secondary school teachers spent working and the types of work activities, based on records and survey forms from 348 teachers in secondary schools in England and Wales. Findings include: (1) the weekly mean time spent on work was 54.4 hours; (2) teachers spent an average of 16.9 hours teaching, 12.9 hours in preparation, 18.1 hours in administration, 5.3 hours in inservice training, and 4.1 hours in other activities; (3) there was a positive relationship between salary and long hours of work; (4) there was a negative relationship between salary and time spent teaching, with more experienced and higher paid teachers spending more time on administration and in meetings; (5) 40 percent of teachers felt that their academic background was not well matched to their current teaching; and (6) there were no significant gender differences in the amount of time spent on work. Policy issues discussed include the use of teachers' time, match of subject expertise to teaching duties, gender and secondary teachers' work, national curriculum and assessment, and the "conscientiousness" factor and teacher motivation. Appendices provide copies of the Record of Teacher Time form and the secondary teacher questionnaire used and statistical data from the study. (JDD)
Workloads, achievement and stress : two follow-up studies of teacher time in key stage 1 commissioned by the Assistant Masters and Mistresses Association by R. J Campbell( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of two follow-up studies, involving 53 infant teachers in England and Wales, was conducted to monitor changes in the workloads of teachers as the national curriculum and assessment were brought in following ministerial promises to reduce the burdens imposed on teachers by the implementation of the national curriculum. Data were collected by questionnaire and time sheets on teachers' use of time, and by interviews with a subsample of the teachers to obtain their perceptions of and feelings about the impact of the Education Reform Act of 1988 on their working lives. The study gathered data on: time on work overall and by subcategories, differences between Year 2 teachers and others, and time spent on different activities. Interviews focused on attitudes toward the national curriculum, workloads, pressure in the school day, and the reduction of pleasure in teaching. The study showed that: (1) 72 percent of the teachers thought that the time they were spending on work in 1991 was more than in 1990; (2) lack of time was the most serious obstacle to teachers' implementation of the national curriculum and assessment; (3) teachers thought it was reasonable for them to work about 8 extra hours per week, but they were working about 22 extra hours per week; and (4) teachers' overload was not restricted to the period in which the national assessments were administered, but was typical of other time periods as well. Policy issues raised by the research findings are discussed. (JDD)
Teacher Time and Curriculum Manageability at Key Stage 1 : a Third Report of Research into the Use of Teacher Time by R. J Campbell( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, the second of two follow-up studies, compares time usage of 105 infant teachers in England and Wales with the workloads of teachers surveyed in 1990 (the pilot study) and 1991. The report presents findings about the nature of the sample, working conditions, and teacher perceptions; time spent on work overall and time spent on teaching, preparation, administration, professional development, and other activities; adequacy of the time available for each subject in the national curriculum; workloads of teachers with Year 2 children in their classes; the "conscientiousness" thesis; manageability of the national curriculum at Key Stage 1; teacher workloads needed to deliver the national curriculum; provision of inservice training; and use of nonteaching assistants. The study confirms previous findings of long hours spent on work, associated primarily with teachers' personal sense of conscientiousness. Lack of time combined with large class size are seen as the main obstacles to delivering the national curriculum. The study concludes that teachers have been statutorily required to implement a broadly based curriculum whose specification has been based on mistakenly ambitious assumptions about the time available for teaching it. Possible solutions to the problem of curriculum manageability are presented. Appendices provide a copy of the questionnaire and statistical data from the study. (JDD)

The Use and Management of Secondary Teachers' Time after the Education Reform Act 1988 by R. J Campbell( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sample of 348 secondary teachers in England and Wales kept a week's record of their work and completed a questionnaire on time usage. The survey indicated that the total mean time spent on work and work-related activities was 54.4 hours per week. Of this, teachers spent 16.9 hours on teaching, 12.9 hours on preparation, 18.1 hours in administration, 5.3 hours in professional development, and 4.1 hours on other activities. The study concluded with five general findings: (1) there are at least two, very different kinds of workload, involving management and teaching; (2) the match between teachers' academic background and their current teaching duties was determined to be poor for 18 percent of teachers based on objective definitions and for 40 percent of teachers based on teachers' evaluations of their academic background; (3) the more hours teachers thought it reasonable for them to be expected to work in nondirected time, the more time they actually spent; (4) there was no significant difference in the amount of time spent on work overall by men and women teachers; and (5) only 6 percent of teachers saw themselves as having responsibility for delivery of the national curriculum. Relevant policy issues are discussed. (Contains approximately 40 references.) (JDD)

Thirteen Hundred and Thirty Days. A Pilot Study of Teacher Time in Key Stage 1. Final Report by R. J Campbell( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ninety-five teachers in Key Stage 1 in England and Wales completed a questionnaire and records of time spent on work over a period of 14 consecutive days, resulting in detailed records of 1,330 days of teachers' time. The data are analyzed in terms of overall time spent on work; time distribution; and time spent specifically on teaching, preparation, administration, inservice training, and other activities. The range of time spent overall was considerable, with the lowest being equivalent to a working week of over 38 hours and the highest being equivalent to nearly 73 hours a week. The average was 49 hours 35 minutes. Overall, teachers spent 35 percent of their time teaching, 31 percent in preparation, 29 percent in administrative activities, 18 percent in inservice training, and 6 percent in other activities. Implications for education policy are discussed, focusing on conditions of work and activity-led staffing, the delivery of the national curriculum, the use of teachers' time, and issues in conceptualizing teacher time at work. Appendices contain the form used for recording teacher time, a copy of the time survey questionnaire, and statistical data from the study. (JDD)

International perspectives on social work and political conflict by Joe Duffy( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International Perspectives on Social Work and Political Conflict provides an important basis for readers to recognise and understand the unique and specialist role that social workers have played and continue to play in international contexts of political conflict. Social workers make an important contribution in these difficult and sometimes dangerous situations across all continents. This book highlights the importance of social work in these very challenging contexts. The first part of this book includes four chapters that summarise the existing knowledge base. The second part focuses on a case study of Northern Ireland where, for the first time, a detailed examination of the social work role was completed which involved researching the views of social work practitioners, managers and educators. Part three then draws together international experts in the field who have written chapters on those regions where social workers have been dealing with long standing periods of political conflict. At a time when violent conflagrations are currently a feature of many countries and regions across the continents of the world, this book offers a critical view of the social work role in these contexts and should thus be considered essential reading for all social work academics, students and professionals working in conflict-affected societies

Feminist economics and public policy : reflections on the work and impact of Ailsa McKay( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Ailsa McKay, who was known not only for her work as a feminist economist but also her influence on Scottish social and economic policy, died in 2014 at the height of her academic career and impact on public life. Organised around the key themes of Ailsa McKay's work, this collection brings together eminent contributors to argue for the importance of making women's roles and needs more visible in economic and social policies. Feminist Economics and Public Policy presents a uniquely coherent analysis of key issues including gender mainstreaming, universal childcare provision and universal basic income security, in the context of today's challenging economic and political environments. It draws on international perspectives to look at the economic role of women, presenting readers with interrelated sections on gender budgeting and work and childcare, before concluding with a discussion on Citizens Basic Income and how it could contribute towards a more efficient, equitable social security system. The theoretical, empirical and practice based contributions assembled here present recommendations for more effective public policy, working towards a world in which women's diverse roles are recognized and fully accounted for. This book is a unique collection, which will be of great relevance to those studying gender and economics, as well as to researchers or policy makers
